Cassandra has been blessed with the ability to see the future, but cursed with the fact that no-one ever believes her warnings. In a show that slides between past, present, and future, Cassandra foretells the events of a war that will overtake her homeland and destroy her family. She speaks with her own voice, and through the mouths of three other Trojan women. Cassandra's story encompasses the legendary Trojan War, but also ranges into our own present time as her images of ignorance, love, rage, and revenge begin to connect with our own ideas of war, safety, and righteousness.
